Building a Cloud that Fits: BMC Software Offers Policy Control and Customization to Cloud Customers
January 12, 2011
As cloud computing continues to top the list of priorities for IT organizations, BMC Software (NASDAQ: BMC) is at the forefront of helping customers embrace the next important phase in cloud computing, namely, controlled customization of cloud environments to meet each organization’s specific needs.
“Enterprises want the benefits of cloud computing using their existing IT infrastructure, and not have to rip-and-replace in order to evolve to the cloud,” said Donna Scott, vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner, Inc. “As a result, enterprises should assess solutions on their ability to work with existing infrastructure as well as offer both standardized and customized cloud solutions.”
BMC is extending its leadership in cloud service management with the announcement that the upcoming version of its Cloud Lifecycle Management solution is being made available today to an exclusive group of enterprises and service providers.
“Fujitsu Finland is designing a cloud infrastructure that meets the stringent needs of our enterprise customers needing high SLAs, strict compliance and the assurance of an enterprise-class cloud,” said Anneli Martonen, director of Information Systems and Core Services at Fujitsu. “We’ve selected BMC Software as a partner to build this cloud due to the robustness and flexibility of their solutions.”
The new capabilities of BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management are designed to enable Cloud administrators to easily and flexibly customize their cloud to meet business users’ demands, while concurrently maintaining control and reducing complexity.
“Enterprise IT organizations and service providers want the benefits of enterprise-class cloud computing without the fear of hardware, or platform lock in,” said Kia Behnia, BMC’s chief technology officer. “BMC provides a secure, scalable and flexible Cloud Service Management platform with comprehensive virtualization platform and hardware support.”
BMC is achieving its cloud management vision alongside several world-class partners — including Cisco and NetApp — whose contributions deepen and extend the flexibility and strength of its cloud offerings.
